Smith is questionable with a sore left knee for Wednesday's contest against the Pistons.
Smith played 35 minutes in a spot start Tuesday, but he's picked up an injury along the way. More information may be available closer to tipoff.
Smith totaled 25 points (10-23 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five assists, and one rebound in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 96-86 victory over the Bulls.
Smith moved into the starting lineup for Tuesday's clash, a position that has eluded him since returning from injury. With a number of players on the sideline, it was encouraging to see Smith total 35 minutes in the victory. It has been a disappointing season for the second-year man, due in large part to the uncertainty around his playing future at times.
Smith will start Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
Mario Hezonja was expected to start the Knicks' final games, but he's out sick. As a result, Smith will get the nod in what will be his first start since March 12.
Smith played 26 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over Washington, finishing with 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-5 3PT) and five assists.
The bigger news is that Smith returned to action after missing the previous three contests with a sore back. The hope is that he'll be able to take the floor for at least one of the Knicks' final two games, but his status for Tuesday's matchup with the Bulls is yet to be clarified. Coach David Fizdale has already stated that he plans on proceeding with Mario Hezonja as the team's starting point guard for the final two games, so Smith will presumably be in line for a bench role if he plays Tuesday and/or Wednesday versus the Pistons.

Smith has missed seven of the past nine games with a back issue, and it's possible we won't see him again this season. We'll likely learn more within the coming days, as there's little reason for the Knicks to trot Smith out if he's not feeling 100 percent. Since joining the team, he's averaging 14.1 points, 5.5 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals on 40.7 percent shooting.

With Smith due to miss a fourth straight game, Emmanuel Mudiay should continue to start and handle the majority of the minutes at point guard.

The former Maverick has been inconsistent with the Knicks, scoring in single digits in three of the last eight games, but Smith still has fantasy upside given the lack of other scoring options around him. The second-year point guard is being counted on as a big part of the rebuild in New York, but he still has questions to answer after taking a step back from his impressive rookie campaign.
Smith tallied 19 points (8-17 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 13 assists, six rebounds, and two steals in 30 minutes during Sunday's 130-118 victory over San Antonio.
